    Rita Hayworth's Grandson, Andrew Embiricos, Dead in Apparent Suicide

    The grandson of '40s film star Rita Hayworth was found dead in his New York City apartment Sunday night, and authorities say the cause of death was likely suicide.

    Andrew Embiricos, 25, was discovered in his bed with a plastic bag over his head, a source told the New York Post.

    "Of course Princess Yasmin Aga Khan and her former husband are deeply saddened by the death of their son Andrew Embiricos in New York on Sunday night," a spokesperson for the Aga Khan Foundation tells PEOPLE. "They would really appreciate if their privacy would be respected in the very difficult moment."

    The son of Hayworth's daughter, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, and Greek shipping heir Basil Embiricos, Andrew received a degree in psychology from Fordham University and contributed to the research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association, according to his official website. (Hayworth died of complications from Alzheimer's in 1987.)

    But he also struggled with drug addiction and had a history of suicide attempts, sources told the Post. In 2007, it was discovered that Embiricos had posted several pornographic videos of himself online.

    "He was always a sweet charming guy," Michael Musto of New York's Village Voice tells PEOPLE. "He once sent me a box of chocolates after I wrote something about him. He grew up with a certain properness because he was obviously the grandson of a screen legend and was mildly rebelling against that in certain ways but was always trying to do the right thing."

    "Andrew seemed upbeat lately, according to my sources," Musto says. "He liked his job and was planning a trip to London. His death came as a shock. He always radiated charm and personality, even when weathering some dark crises."

    Results of a toxicology report are pending.

    That pic is of 2008 and he died at 25? He sure looked older than his years. R.I.P.

    Friend of Rita Hayworth's Grandson Does Not Believe He Killed Himself

    Though reports claim the death of Rita Hayworth's grandson appears to be a suicide, a friend of Andrew Embiricos does not believe he killed himself.

    "The reports are not true," Jake Dingler tells PEOPLE of speculation his friend who was found dead Sunday in his New York City apartment in bed with a plastic bag over his head committed suicide.

    "I spent the last eight hours of his life with him and he was very happy and looking forward to all of the events coming up," Dingler says. "We were going to Amsterdam on Friday for his 26th birthday. We were having brunch with his mother the following morning and we had a lot of great things to look forward to."

    Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Medical Examiner's office tells PEOPLE, "the cause of death is still under investigation and pending further tests," which could take weeks.

    One thing is for sure: family and friends, who are reportedly shocked by Embiricos's death, are devastated.

    "He was the most charismatic person and outgoing and fun and actually the best friend you could have ever asked for," Dingler said of the '40s film star's grandson, who was 25. "I will miss him for the rest of my life."
